Description

An immersive, narrative experience that retells Joel Green’s 4-year fight against cancer through about two hours of poetic, imaginative interaction that explores themes of faith, hope and love.

"This is where we go to remember our son Joel, up through here along this path. We want to show you who he was, and how his life changed us. Can we walk here together for a while?"

A videogame developer's love letter to his son; a memorial to Joel Green; an interactive tribute to the loved ones of over 200 of our Kickstarter backers. Can you find hope in the face of death?

Gameplay:
Using a mix of first-person and third-person perspective, and simple point-and-click interaction, we invite the player to slow down, look around, and immerse themselves in this deeply personal memoir.

NY Times, NPR, Wired Magazine, Radiolab, Reply All Podcast, The New Yorker, The Guardian, and many others

Reviews:
"I think it might have changed me in some way that I'm yet to fully understand." -Polygon

What’s New

Version 1.0.4

This is a minor update that softens a few rough edges, especially about text getting cut off, dealing with icons, and touch areas on smaller devices. We also found a bug that caused the iPad mini sensitivity to feel far too high, so we brought it in line with the rest of the devices.

Editors' Notes

We’ve seen death in videogames before, but never like this. Based on the developers’ heartbreaking true story, That Dragon, Cancer explores every parent’s nightmare through intimate, emotional moments that build to an unforgettable experience. By the end of this extraordinary tribute, you’ll understand the journey Amy and Ryan Green went through and just how much they loved their son Joel.

Really emotional

Thank you for creating this

Loistavan "pelin" kömpelö käännös

Hieno kokemus. Peli tämä ei ole, vaan enemmänkin interaktiivinen tarina. Välillä ohjaus on tuskastuttavan hankala kosketusnäytöllä, mutta pääosin kuitenkin siedettävää.
Peli on lyhyt, noin pari tuntia, mutta tarina todella vahva.
Suosittelen testaamaan. Jättää raskaan olon ja onnistuu koskettamaan. Aikuiseen makuun. Teinit ja lapset ei tästä saa mitään irti.
